Architecture, Art, and Kringle in Racine
Saturday, March 25 | 9:00–5:30
Join MOWA in Racine, nestled on the shore of Lake Michigan. Racine’s world-famous, delicious Danish kringle, historic architecture, and museum with an extraordinary collection of contemporary crafts make the city a rewarding destination for art lovers.
The tour begins inside the Racine Art Museum, where MOWA members will have the opportunity to view Watercolor Wisconsin, one of the museum’s most popular shows. We will enjoy lunch at a local café and then venture to Bendtsen’s Bakery to pick up some kringle for dessert! Finally, we will travel to the home of S.C. Johnson to take in the iconic Prairie Style house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Dueling Designs in Spring Green
Saturday, May 20 | 7:30–7:30
Join MOWA on a trip to the small village of Spring Green, Wisconsin, famously known as the home of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The village boasts Wright’s Taliesin home and the local attraction The House on the Rock, designed by Alex Jordan, Jr. The House on the Rock, often mistaken for a Frank Lloyd Wright, was built after Jordan shared his own design with Wright, whom he openly admired.
Unfortunately, Wright hated it and told Jordan that he would not hire him to design even a chicken coop! Furious, Jordan built The House on the Rock mere miles from Wright’s home and opened it up as a tourist attraction. Join us as we visit both sites and compare and contrast the designs and aesthetics of the two architects.
